Angela Chase was mesmerized, though whether it was by the line to see Santa, the animatronic display of a family stacking presents, or simply the chaos of it all, was an open question. "Can you hear yourself think?" she asked Marty, not entirely rhetorically.

"I can barely hear you," he said loudly. "How many people do you have on your list?"

"Your family plus a couple of people back in school," Marty said, pulling off his gloves. "About eight in total counting you. And I have no idea what to get anyone. Every time I think of something I realize they don't have it in 1997."

"And really... who on your list wouldn't like either gift from the future or their own time period?" Marty said in his enabling fashion.

"Completely," Marty nodded for emphasis. "And while we are there we can see a movie that's new! Or something."

Marty did not clap his hands in glee. That would be unmanly.

"Cool," he said pulling out his cellphone and waving at the guard. "I'll see if we can get a direct stop. I assume you want to stay in New York?"

Marty held up his finger as the phone connected and ten minutes later he closed it shut. "Okay. We just need to be in the Ladies room, third stall on the left in ten minutes and we'll have a direct route. Think you can sneak me in?"

"See, and now you have me wanting to try on a wig," Marty said as he headed toward the Ladies room. "And I've just been dying to try out my falsetto voice."

Marty frowned but took off the tie as ordered and tilted the beret just so. "Oui," he said with a high falsetto and fake french accent. "Let's go!"

Marty was right on her heels, "Rapidement ! Rapidement ! Nous n'avons pas beaucoup d'heure!"

And there would be the stall with a glowy portal thingie.

"After you..." Marty said gesturing with a small bow.

Marty nodded. "I sure hope sooooo," he said in his falsetto. "Come dear! We have shopping to do."

"I like your thinking," Marty said following behind her. "Because who wouldn't love an iPod? Unless they are also from the future and have something way cooler."

Marty frowned.

"Okay now I want something way cooler than an iPod from the future."

"No but my cell phone did before it exploded on that wacky voice mail day," Marty snickered. "Though I guess a normal iPod would be fine. Maybe they've come out with new ones since we've been gone."

"What? It's not a good look for me?" Marty said pulling it off his head as they headed to the store. "I thought I pulled that off very well."

"I'm thinking we're going to need to get ourselves some early Christmas-"

Then Marty stopped talking because he was drooling over the iPhone.

"Please tell me these work interdimensionally?"

Which got him a strange look from a clerk.

"Are we just shopping for ourselves now?" Marty asked. "I wonder if Marcella would like an iPod or if she'd just blow it up."

"And Danielle would probably freak out over it too," Marty suggested. "We'll probably have to load it up for her."

"I'd say shoes but I think she has every pair ever created," Marty said still playing with the demo iPhone. "Gift card? Or is that too impersonal?"

"That might work," Marty said pursing his lips in thought. "And I bet we can find a vintage leather jacket for Zero if we find a decent enough vintage store."

"Yes but vintage wasn't vintage ten years ago," Marty argued. "It was thrift store stuff then and nobody was interested in it. It hadn't aged enough."

Then he grinned.

"Plus we have new cool tech stuff. And maybe we should get a gag gift for Angel. Like those plastic vampire teeth."

"Maybe that's because no one ever got him a gag gift," Marty replied. "Though we can get a book and a gag and see how he reacts."

Marty looked at the shiny and shrugged. "She probably does. Maybe there's a iPod taser accessory."

"I'm sure it is," Marty said pulling out his wallet to pay for the gifts. "Any business a block away from any campus is sure to have steady business."
